“Incredible Crepes and Fries!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Saw this place while walking along the road that parallels the ocean. Scoped the menu and decided the prices were right. Beers are 1500 cfa which is $3 US funds each. I ordered a crepe that had strawberries inside and a mango Italian ice I'll call it on top with little dollops of whipped cream. i can only tell you that it melted in my mouth! Unbelievable! I had a few beers, an incredible crepe and then ordered some fries (because my friend had the fries and they were INCREDIBLE!). Mine were just as good. Made to order and hand cut. Total bill for all of this (the ocean view across the street was free!) was 9000 cfa and that included the tip or $18 USA funds for the whole meal and the ambience and the view. Simply incredible!

“Very good snacks, very good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Hands down the best place to spend a nice afternoon with a drink and some snacks (try the crepes) - for a good price! Decorated with taste and simplicity. Very good for eating alone, with your partner or brining the family along. You will find a nice mixture of locals and foreigners in the place. One of the highlights of Almadies - for an affordable price.
